The first scheduled LOT Polish Airlines flight to Tashkent took off on March 13th at 10:55 p.m. The opening ceremony at Warsaw Chopin Airport was attended by Michał Fijoł, the President of the Management Board of LOT Polish Airlines, Bożena Żelazowska, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, Amirsaid Agzamkhodjaev, Ambassador of Uzbekistan in Poland, Łukasz Chaberski, acting President of the Management Board of Polskie Porty Lotnicze, and the crew and passengers of the first flight. LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 landed in the capital city of Uzbekistan the next day a few minutes after 9 a.m. local time.

- Today, we are launching another LOT Polish Airlines connection - to Uzbekistan. It is one of the most intriguing countries in the world, which has a lot to offer to passengers from Poland and Europe. The attractions of the Silk Route and the legendary landmarks of Samarkand, Khiva or Bukhara are yet another unique spots on the map of the world, which are available to travellers in the LOT Polish Airlines route network. I am also convinced that the possibility of comfortably reaching the heart of Central Asia onboard our aircraft will generate the potential for further development of tourism and economic cooperation between Poland and Uzbekistan, said the President of the Management Board of LOT Polish Airlines, Michał Fijoł during the opening ceremony. - We have launched our connection having the citizens of Uzbekistan in mind as well. From Chopin Airport, which is a convenient hub, a person travelling from Tashkent can reach nearly 80 cities in Europe and North America, which are available in our route network, he added.

Flights between Warsaw and Tashkent are scheduled for Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. LOT Polish Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 coming back to Warsaw are scheduled for Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. In April and May, the Polish carrier will launch an additional rotation on this route on Tuesdays, with a return to Warsaw scheduled on Wednesdays.

Uzbekistan, with its history spanning over 2,700 years, including the boom taking place in the era of the Silk Route, is a country that dazzles with its landmarks, culture and tradition. With its monumental and lavish castles, majestic mosques and strongholds, and its location among deserts and oases, it is dubbed the touristic gem of Central Asia. The introduction of the visa-waiver program for citizens of 45 countries (including Poland) in 2019 has brought a considerable increase in the number of foreigners coming to Tashkent and other cities in Uzbekistan – from 2.7 million in 2017 to 5 million in 2023. With its modern resort hotels and high-speed trains connecting the largest cities, Uzbekistan is among the top countries with the most dynamically developing tourism industry according to the World Tourism Organization. According to the “Uzbekistan 2030” strategy, the number of foreign tourists is to increase up to 15 million.

Apart from connections to Athens and Riyadh, Tashkent is yet another destination provided for in the LOT Polish Airlines’ development strategy for 2024-2028. By planning the expansion of the route network to include 20 new connections, the Polish carrier wants to be the first choice and a partner for passengers looking for new travel ideas.

Tickets to Uzbekistan are now available at, at the LOT Contact Center, at LOT Travel offices and via our agents’ sales channels.
